    Anyone know anything about laws?

    I was denied entry to a bar because I'm 19. Makes sense so far. But... my father was there too.

    So I was restricted entry to a bar even with a parent present.

    It was a goodbye party for a coworker too, which blows chunks. Neither my dad or I had any intent of drinking (they have a pretty rad arcade).

    The website says 16-20 not allowed for "licensing reasons." But 15 and under with a parent is A-OK. I don't see the logic.

    its private property so they can deny anyone who they want entrance

    and even with your dad, its not like you can just suddenly ignore the drinking age... I know you weren't planning on drinking, but having your dad present makes no difference whatsoever

    I know, but they can't sell me alcohol anyway so they aren't liable for any of that.

    But they can sell it to your dad and he can give it to you. Even if your dad isn't going to buy you drinks they still have to watch out for people who do. They have strict rules for a reason and if the rules are broken the place can be shut down or fined. In high school I used to hear countless stories of girls who would go with their moms to bars and think they were cool because their mom would buy them like one drink or something

    My parents are thinking of starting a shitstorm (they aren't really bright) and I knew since it's private property it's probably a lost cause, but I just don't understand the logic.

    IGNORE HER Luci-fer. If she walks into the room, walk away. If she follows you, go to a bathroom. Remove her number from your phone. I don't really give a fuck about what it takes, but stop talking to her, stop giving her opportunities to talk to you, and don't put up with her. And if you notice you're starting to think about her, immediately go play some video games or something to take your mind off it, something that requires active participation and/or social interaction so you don't drift off into thinking of her. You need to learn self control.

    Did I say "this is illegal someone help me justify this?" No, I did not. I wanted a simple bit of clarification, saying I didn't understand their logic.

    In other news, in trying to convince them to not give a shit, my mom drew a connection between her partial paralysis and how she was able to walk again... and why we should try to change their policy. I... don't know.

    I took a coop course (ie. unpaid internship for a credit) in high school. There was this kid that was clearly going nowhere in life - he had three different placements, got fired twice for not showing up. He slacked on everything, and I don't think he passed the course. He's a social god though in that he has literally hundreds of friends. This was 3.5 years ago, in grade 11 - we haven't talked since. We took the same bus to get to our placements, so I kind of became an acquaintance with him over the four months.

    I just finished my freshman year at uni a month ago and I get a random facebook chat from him today that we should hang out sometime. I told him that I work pretty much all the time, and he tells me that I still have nights and that we'll go to some parties soon. That brightened my week up so much.

    I wish I could just conjure up that fuzzy feeling 24/7.

    :)

    Oh Jesus, she's trying to talk to me. I don't know what to do, I need to stay away but I want to talk to her and tell her. But if I do, I might fall for her
    I can tell you from personal experience (I had something very similar happen to me about a year ago) that it's best to stay the fuck away from her for a while. You don't need to tell her that you're not going to talk to her anymore, just stop all contact and she'll eventually get it. There isn't much more school left, and it'll probably be a lot easier to ignore her over summer unless she lives really close to you.

    Until then though, just straight-up ignore her - don't acknowledge her existence, avoid being in the same room with her, stop thinking about her. At the very beginning of this school year, after an entire summer of zero-contact, she loudly said "Hi Robert!" as we passed each other in a hallway. I didn't acknowledge her and kept walking. She repeated herself, louder, but I still didn't respond. It might seem like an asshole thing to do, but remember that she was a complete bitch to you and doesn't deserve any response. (to put it very bluntly)

    It might seem a bit weird to do, but if you notice your mind trailing off a bit thinking about her, try focusing your thoughts on the negatives. Thinking about the positives will form a romanticized, exaggerated depiction of her in your head, and you want to avoid that.

    If you give yourself enough time, you'll lose all your previous feelings for her, there may or may not be a period of time when you're just frustrated/pissed off at her, but that will pass too. Several months later you'll be at the point where you no longer care in the slightest and can have a regular conversation with her. I don't know about you, but in my case we were really good friends before shit happened, so every once in a while during that conversation you could visibly see how much she missed the closeness of that friendship.

    Basically, stay away and your feelings will eventually fade away.

    At this point it upsets me because all I can tell about myself is that I'm the most generic, average person ever.
    From what I've heard from other people, I gather that physically, my looks are just that of just an average guy. And for personality, I get comments mostly like "lukewarm" or even "emotionless" a couple times.

    I really don't know what to do about it because I'm just saying what I just say what I normally would.

    try to be more positive to situations and try to get excited about things around people. it sounds dumb "trying" to put on an emotion but it really is possible and eventually you'll naturally be more like that (which will help people to warm to you better)

    i mean, for example, say you're out with your friends and someone says "hey how bout we see this movie?" and other friends are thinking the idea over, just jump on it and be like "yeh sure why the hell not!" - even if you think the film might be a bit shit or you're not sure you can be bothered to see a film (obviously don't use these words because they sound retarded but you get the idea i'm trying to convey hopefully). the worst that could happen is that the rest of the group decides not to but you won't be judged for that. people love enthusiasm and a care-free spirit in the right degree. it's far better than saying "whatever" or "i've heard that film got some quite mediocre reviews"

    don't use this as a blueprint though - people react to different things in different situations. in general, just try to talk more openly and friendly

    yeah sure people will say you're pretending to be something your not blah blah... but if you're not happy with how things are then you should make an effort to change it right?

    Anybody have any good advice on how to get rid of crazy women?

    My friend has a stalker who in the last two days has sent him 183 call me's and while i was typing this 6 more have arrived.

    He deleted his facebook account and blocked her number but she got a new one and has used it JUST to text him!

    At this point its really creepy and he has no idea what else he can do.

    Also 10 more just arrived... Great.

    Edit:

    Oh did i mention she is going out with his best friend?

    Found a bag of hersheys kisses and a bar of chocolate in my glovebox. I honestly don't remember them being there, so I asked everybody who's been in my car since the last time I checked my glovebox (dont use it very often) and they all said that they didn't know anything about it. The kicker? The name of the bar of chocolate is Sweet Obsession

    Sounds like a good ol' fashioned practical joke to me, that or the girl who fancies you is a bit of a weird one.

    Oh dear. My friend seems to be trying to make me have a go at her. I am apparently too 'goddamn passive' and she wants it to be me who does something wrong for a change. I am not respoding to her because I don't want to be a jerk.

    It was via text if you were wondering.

    you don't like her, don't deal with her. just tell her you don't have feelings. if she's a real friend she won't push you into it.

    I am just generaly nice to her and dont insult her, while she does insult me. I'm fine with that, but sometimes she crosses the line and i pull her up on it, and then that was the end of an argument that stemmed from me pulling her up on something. In hindsight it was a little trivial. I told her I wasnt going to argue with her because if i got properly annoyed i would say something incredibly offensive.

    Edited:

    Sorry about any poor grammar or spelling, I am on my phone.

    no male high school senior is going to get to the point where they are really upset with you and need to spend some time apart right before graduation
    they just get pissed for a bit and avoid you for a little while until you can be bros again

    stop being a dick? i don't think there's much advice to give you other than to be more self aware and stop being a dick to everyone. there's no magical "meditate 3 hours a day" solution that will help you if you don't have the self restraint to have some sense of control over your personality or at the very least your actions
